We had a short break in Lille and liked this restaurant so much we went twice. The food is excellent, the restaurant is really charming - lots of bare brick, and nice ambience, Would recommend it.

I highly recommend this place to those visiting Lille. It is a good match of cosy atmosphere, competent and friendly service and tasty food. Here you can try typical dishes from the North of France or just order a plate of pasta. Both will be delicious!

Started with cocktails then delicious starters and mains a good bottle of chardonnay and brandies to follow all for €115. Stunning food mainly locals eating but they must know it's... More

The food was average, the service terrible. They appeared short staffed, yet complacent. We had to ask for more wine, they delivered the wrong main for my... More

The restaurant was full (best make a reservation) yet the service was top - complements to the very kind and hard working waiter. Food was very tasteful too. We did not go for the dessert but they all really looked awesome.

Very nice "Estaminet" in Lille, location in Lille Center, food is excellent : just try the Rabbit leg with Maroilles cheese and the Tartelette aux Maroilles. But better to make a reservation.

I first visited this restaurant 2 years ago where we happened upon it by chance on a very rainy winters night when other restaurants were full. Such was the impression we wanted to come back although this time we pre booked for safety. When pre booking they only give you two options 7:30pm or 9:30pm and ideally I would have... More
